Nefarious Londoner Amir Ali used a petrol bomb to destroy a pub, then turned around and ran face-first into a lamppost. Here's security camera footage of the violent criminal looking like a total dum-dum.
Ali was found guilty today and will be jailed for eight years. In the above video, Ali breaks the window and his partner handles the bomb. Authorities haven't found the partner yet, but the court recorder characterized the bungling bombers' motive as "part of a campaign of violence and intimidation by the local drug lords in Crawley against the licensees of this pub." Point of query: Rhetorically speaking, should we consider this man a vandal, arsonist, or terrorist? I need to know which "dumb criminal" subcategory he belongs to. [BBC, Daily Mail]
